On Monday, the Trump administration used the official White House Twitter account to attack California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris. Trump’s White House accused Senator Harris of “supporting the animals of MS-13.”

It was a definite departure from the norm. President Donald Trump usually uses his own personal Twitter account to attack members of congress.

The reason for the attack on Harris? The Democratic Senator attended the Los Angeles Families Belong Together march over the weekend and has called for reforms to the policies and practices of ICE.

But Harris easily identified the source of the attack on her integrity and record as a prosecutor and former Attorney General of California. It did not take her long to respond.

Harris, a graduate of Howard University and University of California Hastings, worked in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office and City Attorney’s Office. She was elected District Attorney of San Francisco in 2004 where she served until 2011.

In 2010, Harris was elected California’s Attorney General and reelected in 2014. On November 8, 2016, she became a United States Senator, becoming California’s third female Senator.

Harris, whose term in the Senate won’t end until 2023, also reached out via email to her supporters about the false allegations made against her by the Trump administration.
